Welcome New Honorary Lemming

By Kanrei

Lisa, forgive me but I cannot let this one pass by. There is a version of the new Paris Hilton CD (I got it right!) I must have. It had to be made with me in mind and the Lemming House has a new patron saint.

British graffiti artist and prankster Banksy, a man who has managed to spray paint the wall between Israel and Palestine has struck again, this time targeting Paris Hilton. This man is now a hero of mine. He gets honorary lemming status for ever.

Banksy went into a HMV record store in London and secretly replaced the Paris Hilton CDs with his own special version. He changed the label to have a nude shot of Hilton on the outside and her dog’s head super-imposed on her body inside as well as her getting out of her limo amid homeless people. It advertises that it features such songs as "Why am I Famous?" "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?" and the CDs are nothing but 40 minutes of Banksy’s music and Paris Hilton’s sampled catchphrase “That’s hot”.

He claims to have made the switch to 500 CDs throughout England. He even got the bar codes right on his fakes so that the store computers cannot tell the difference. This guy is brilliant.

I am so impressed with this. Not only has he given people an infinitely better CD for their money, but he has removed at least 500 of the real Paris CDs from this planet. The apocalypse is beaten back for another day.
